"All speeches of Irakli Gharibashvili, his statements and used international platforms are always saturated with the interests of the country. Irakli Gharibashvili comes out and tells the truth. I understand that this is very painful and difficult for our partners to hear, but we must speak the truth, we must tell the truth to our friends. We must always pursue the interests of our country and people... We have a very difficult and bad experience, we have had a war, we have lost territories, we have a lot of casualties - civilians, lost territories, our hero soldiers, and what did we get from this?! Only worry and anger. So we have to understand the recent past and pursue the interests of our country and people."
Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said about Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili's statements. Speaking in Bratislava, Gharibashvili said that "one of the reasons for the start of the war was Ukraine's intention to become a member of NATO".
